Let's see...where to begin? I know - I'll cheat!
We were busy from the time we got up Saturday AM. Got a lot accomplished, though - here, have a look!
----Well, somehow LJ has LOST the photos I uploaded last night of the "big" stuff - the milking stands Sweet Geek built out of reclaimed pallets, AND the stack of pallets we have sitting for the milkroom siding. :sigh: I'll have to upload those tonight, I guess - my Mac lets me see ALL my photos; this PC only lets me see them if I go INTO scrapbook...and there's no search feature (that I can find, anyway) in Scrapbook. (I *KNOW* I uploaded them - I remember tagging them and everything. :grrrr:)
Anyway, outdoor stuff: 1 almost completely finished milking stand - WITH the neck stantion! - and 2 that just need the stantion part. The goats figured out how to hop up there....soon as all 3 are finished we'll start feeding them on the stands every night.
Herself made a crocheted mouse: (SANS Pattern, I might add!)

My kippah in progress:
I knew going in it wasn't exactly what I wanted - I want more of a snood. I need to add about 10 more rounds to it...I'm trying to decide *how* to add them. Still, it's a lovely thing - the silk is a joy to work with!
Finished Wooly Board:
Sweet Geek is a fair woodworker. His problem? If it's not written out explicitly (First A, then B, then C etc) he can't do it. The instructions? Assumed you had a clue as to what you were building. He didn't. Lots of angst...but he got it worked out. And, hey look - it WORKS!!!
Wooly Board in use:
Here's a better shot:

Yes, the Never-Ending Cardigan is FINISHED. Just needs to be properly washed and blocked - but the knitting and sewing up is DONE. :huzzah: My largest project to date!
The pattern was easy to follow and the repeats were easily memorized. It just took a lot of fortitude to actually *finish* this - but I'm so glad I did!
Even better - IT FITS HIM!!!!!! Photos will be taken next weekend of him IN it........:happy dance:
Gotta run - I spent too much time fighting with Scrapbook over this!
